Most kidney stones contain calcium and can cause excruciating pain. Magnesium powerfully suppress the formation of calcium-type kidney stones. It also acts as a powerful relaxant for muscle spasms within the ureter – which is the cause of the excruciating pain associated with kidney stones. Several of my patients who once suffered with recurring kidney stones have reported that since taking magnesium, they have not formed any more stones. Taking 1,000 mg. of magnum citrate/malate in water can suppress acute kidney stone pain. Since magnesium citrate can loosen the bowel, if you do not have a problem with constipation, it would be best to take magnesium glycinate.
